I enjoy playing video slots from time to time here in Oklahoma at the Indian Casinos.

Here's a story my wife relayed to me while she was playing video slots the other day.

A young man sat down a few machines down from my wife.

From the denomination window, he selected 10 cents as the credit value.

The choices were 1 cent, 2 cents, 5 cents and 10 cents.

He started feeding 100 dollar bills into the machine.

He hit the max bet button which made each spin cost 50 dollars!

He jackpotted 6 times in less than an hour.

Each time he hit a jackpot, the red light on top of the machine came on

and a casino attendant had to come over and insert a key to reset the machine.

A cashier also came over and paid him right there at the machine.

He went away with just over $10,000

I have no idea what he spent to get that much. Maybe as much as 3 or 4 thousand?

The attendant told my wife he comes in often and sometimes he wins and sometimes he doesn't.

He only plays two machines in the casino. IGT's Aztec Pyramids

I stick with the IGT video slots and move to another one if I feel it's not paying.

I try to avoid any sort of rythmn when hitting the spin button each time.

The machines are usually going to take 5 or 6 steps forward in the casino's favor and one step back

in the player's favor - up until it's time for it to pay off the player.

It is said that there is a RNG supposedly deciding the outcome of each spin, I believe this to be

a false notion. A 15 million dollar casino will not stake their business on a pure random outcome game.

It may look random and there may be RNG's running in the background of a machine, but the manufacturer

of a video slot machine can guarantee the casino a profit margin over a span of dollars inserted and that's not

a random calculation.

I take small profits then move on to another machine. Also, Blackjack has been fair to me as long as I don't stay at the

table too long.

If you have any cool stories or tips to share, I would like to hear them.

      Watch out for this scam...

      Scammers have been pulling a fast one on unsuspecting slot players.

      Here's how it goes...

      The scammer sits down at a slot machine and inserts  a dollar bill. He takes a couple spins and brings his balance down to a few cents.

      He hits the cash out button and uses his hand to block the voucher slot so that his voucher jams just to the inside edge of the ticket slot.

      He leaves it there and walks a short distance away, waiting for another player to sit at that machine.

      He is hoping that when the next player cashes out, they will grab his small change ticket and walk away without looking at it and their actual voucher will jam just behind his.

      Then, the scammer comes back to that machine and either fishes the voucher out or inserts another dollar and cashes out, getting the previous players voucher plus his own.

      Just take a second to look at the amount on your voucher when you leave a machine and that it matches the credit value you have and this won't happen to you.
